My system has 32 kB:
$ ulimit -a | grep locked
max locked memory       (kbytes, -l) 32

32 kB <<<<<<<<<<<<<< 20 MB

There's no way we can lock 20 MB in memory.

The soft limit presented allows applications to lock a total of 8 pages 
(under 32-bit 4kB pages). That sounds awfully few, but that's reality.
